PENNSYLVANIA'S NONFARM JOBS DOWN IN JULY

 PENNSYLVANIA'S NONFARM JOBS DOWN IN JULY
 /ADVANCE/ HARRISBURG, Pa., Aug. 29 /PRNewswire/ -- Pennsylvania's


nonagricultural jobs declined by 50,000 to 5 million in July, state Department of Labor and Industry analysts reported today.
 The loss, which reversed a five-month job climb since February, was higher than the average June-to-July seasonal drop of 29,300. Compared to July 1991, total jobs were down 49,500.
 The department's job count excludes farm workers, domestic workers, unpaid family workers and the self-employed.
 More than 90 percent of the total job decline from June originated in service-producing industries, where jobs fell 45,400 since June -- about twice the seasonal norm -- to 3.82 million. Most of the drop was in education-related jobs from local government, private education services, and bus transportation.
 Jobs in service-producing industries were down 12,000 from July 1991.
 Goods-producing jobs totalled 1.18 million in July, down 4,800 from June and 38,100 from July 1991. The month-to-month loss was only about 70 percent of the normal seasonal slide.
 Manufacturing jobs fell 9,300 in July to 946,900, a new record low. Both durable and nondurable goods contributed to the downturn.
 Nondurable goods jobs, at 420,000 in July, also set a new record low. Petroleum and coal products was the only industry group within the sector to show an increase.
 Jobs in durable goods were down 4,800 to 526,900 in July. Only one durable goods industry, furniture and fixtures, posted a job gain.
 A gain of 5,000 construction jobs in July partially offset the manufacturing job losses.
 A year-ago comparison revealed overall goods-producing jobs were down 38,100. Manufacturing (-24,600) and construction (-12,100) led the decrease.
 Among Pennsylvania's 15 major labor market areas, only the State College Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA), with a modest gain of 100 jobs, reported an increase since June. All others, with the exception of the Beaver County Primary Metropolitan Statistical Area (PMSA), posted declines ranging from 300 in the Williamsport MSA to 14,900 in the Philadelphia PMSA. The Beaver County PMSA remained stable in July.
